The objective of this research is to establish a baseline in areas of DTMA project intervention in terms of standard of living of households, adoption of new varieties of maize and adaptation to natural disasters. This work will help to appreciate better the impact of the interventions of DTMA project by providing a basis for comparison. This document presents a summary of the baseline surveys conducted in the villages of Kandi and Tanguieta in northern Benin with 175 randomly selected farms.

Maize is becoming increasingly important as a food security crop in West Africa. However, recurring droughts constitute a continuous challenge to its production. Attempts at addressing the drought problem resulted in the conduct of a participatory community survey of maize production systems with about 20–40% probability of drought risk in four DTMA countries (Bénin Republic, Ghana, Mali, and Nigeria). The project is part of an initiative to develop and disseminate appropriate drought tolerant maize varieties in sub-Saharan Africa. The main objectives of the community survey were to complement household survey data, capture essential qualitative information and data that are difficult to obtain through formal household surveys, and serve as a pilot application for potential expansion through the African region. The survey was conducted in selected communities in two districts with high levels of maize production in each of the DTMA countries.
